Recently I picked back up in Exodus where Moses is leading the children of Israel through the wilderness for forty years. Those people were so dang blessed... I mean really, Manna from heaven for FORTY YEARS! The children who were born out there knew nothing BUT Manna! They likely grew up with that miracle for so long, not knowing what it was like to not have it fall, that they likely complained!
|What!?! Manna AGAIN?!?|
You Never Really Know What You Got Till Its GoneIf you want to feel really blessed, just take a look at everything you already have. I'm working on not waiting for it all to be taken away before giving gratitude through prayer and action towards god and those around me. An attitude of gratitude makes everything else better, more positive, and allows me to appreciate how much I already have. Hopefully then, I wont end up like the people who were born in the wilderness who were shocked to find that in the promised land there was a lot more to breakfast then walking out of the tent in the morning!
